Happy birthday to me! Happy birthday to me! Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me!
I had a little birthday earlier this month... the big 3 - 0. How did that happen so fast? Everyone has been asking if I feel any differently but its been two whole weeks and I'm just as happy as I was before I turned 30. No grey hair, no new wrinkles... so far, so good!
The best part of it being your birthday is getting to do what you want to do! Mr. ATG and I spent the day before my birthday at home. It was a day full of bike rides, grilling, eating and drinking grapefruit margaritas... oh and dark chocolate brownies.
Burlap Tom's?? I'm in love.
On my actual birthday Mr. ATG had to work so my sweet brother, Johnny, took me out on the town in Raleigh. We had dinner at a Plates Neighborhood Kitchen. So good! Johnny has the duck gnocchi and I had the mushroom bar lotto. So good! The restaurant is small, the tables are a little close together but the ambiance and the food is out of this world. I definitely recommend this restaurant if you are in the Raleigh area.
I was a little more focused on catching up with my brother and the amazing glass of Malbec I had that I forgot to take pictures! Guess I'll just have to go back...
Dinner was followed up by dessert and more drinks... and then another bar and even more drinks. I definitely brought 30 in with a bang!
Thanks for all the sweet birthday messages on Facebook! An even bigger thank you to our awesome customers being so patient and understanding that we need a break sometimes too!
